The Callwood Family is one of the oldest families in the BVI's. Their history is no doubt deep but getting them to tell you about it has proven a bit tough. They are.....vague. It's a big family but again, numbers are hard to come by. Legendary Foxy's is supposedly a Callwood. Five years ago when I had a chance to chat one on one with Foxy, he told me he has 19 kids. Or maybe it was 19 boys and then some girls....I forget and/or he was vague.
Anyway - Callwood Rum Distillery is located in Cane Garden Bay. The distillery is over 400 years old. The last 200+ years, it's been operated by the Callwood family. They still make rum from island sugar cane every March through August in the same location as two hundred years ago! We took a tour. It was very interesting.
The press where the sugar cane is "squeezed."
The original building is still used!
